Member RID numbers change for newly eligible members

As the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) moves to a new eligibility system, a new numbering sequence is being used for member identification numbers (RIDs). Beginning July 17, 2016, RIDs issued to newly eligible members include a "120" prefix rather than a "100" prefix. New RIDs continue to follow the same 12-digit format of 12xxxxxxxx99. All previously assigned "100" RIDs remain intact. Presumptive Eligibility RIDs are also unaffected.

The change in RIDs is a preliminary step in the process of replacing the State's current eligibility system, Indiana Client Eligibility System (ICES), with the new Indiana Eligibility Determination Services System (IEDSS). The eligibility system is used by the FSSA's Division of Family Resources (DFR) to assist with the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) member application and eligibility determination processes. Beginning March 1, 2017, IEDSS will be implemented incrementally, by region, over the course of a year's time. Watch future IHCP publications for additional information about this transition.
